Chinese woman can write with both hands simultaneously in different languages

A woman from north China's Hebei province has revealed a unique talent years after accidentally discovering it in high school: the ability to write with both hands at once.

Chen Siyuan, a 24-year-old resident of the city of Handan, said her gift came not from hours of practice, but the need to finish her homework on time.

"When I was in high school, I unconsciously wrote with both hands while trying to finish my homework in a hurry," Chen recalled.

"My classmates were curious and tried to imitate me, but none of them succeeded," she said. Chen, who later obtained a college degree in English, can even write Chinese with one hand and English with the other.

One of our former Presidents, James Garfield, could do the same thing. That is bizarre.
